Watch my video to hear my fussy cutting tale!

I also had fun using the scraps to make the 6" finished Churn dash!  I am going to make one each month and use a table runner, or maybe in the border of the quilt.

***My Block making tip ***

This block is more spectacular with more interesting fabric, this is how I had to angle my cuts to bet the units with a stem in the corner
